Jamie Beale has today released his new single titled ‘Borderline’. The song got me from that bassline on. It’s got that infectious quality about it that says ‘underground’ but whispers ‘timeless’. I kind of wish this song came out when I was a kid so it could have influenced my musicianship. It has that way about it. That way where it says ‘come along, if you want…’ know you will but wanting you to anyways.
With a dark hook and a willful riff, ‘Borderline’ takes you across said border and lets your heart find a new home.
Taking to writing after a whirlwind year, and increasingly isolated period of his life, songwriter Jamie Beale is set to release his debut single ‘Borderline’ on April 8th; taken from his upcoming debut album out later this year.
Beale has an array of musical achievements under his belt; as vocalist and songwriter of Bristol-based rock band Novatines he’s toured the UK and Europe extensively and has received international radio play on BBC Radio 2, 6 Music and Radio X.
Self produced and engineered by Katie May from Real World Studios, Borderline hits like a sugar rush. The track, an enchanting blend of indie-rock, dream-pop and acid-funk, blends dewy guitar textures, soaring harmonies and synth-laden soundscapes backed by the track’s shuffling drums and tantalizing grooves.
This, coupled with his melancholic lyrics and unwavering romanticism, sees Jamie managing to find nostalgia in the present.
